Fine Art

The Fine Art department offers a range of innovative study at undergraduate, taught postgraduate and research levels. It gives students a true art school experience.

Here, Fine Art encourages the dialogue between traditional and emerging genres, exposing students to a wide spectrum of techniques, ideas and approaches.

We prioritise three key principles.

  • First, we give students the opportunity to develop their individual and collaborative artistic practice, making work and developing ideas.
  • Second, we instil a comprehensive understanding of making within contemporary art.
  • Third, we ask students to reflect on their work within a wider social sphere.

The Fine Art department offers dynamic production-based and studio programmes in which students develop their professional practice. Our studio facilities have been described as some of the best in the UK and offer a largely unrivalled range of techniques and media, all available to Fine Art students, six days a week.

Our staff are all working makers and practitioners, with a wealth of experience in practical and conceptual arenas. The Department has a dedicated Contemporary Art Research Centre and access to learning via impressive practitioner networks and partnerships. Students are immersed in a stimulating intellectual and creative milieu for innovation in contemporary Fine Art.
